We consider access to healthcare a universal right, however, for many, this is a luxury out of reach.
The global pandemic has taught us many lessons including the importance of the great blessing of health and wellbeing. For those whose lives are already blighted by poverty, accessing medical care for protection and treatment for disease is virtually impossible.
For over 35 years, we have been working to equalise access to key health care services to help improve the health and wellbeing of children and mothers as well as those suffering from disease, malnutrition, and life-threatening injuries.
We have helped millions of suffering people around the globe. We have provided emergency medical aid, blood supplies andambulances to disaster zones like Gaza and Syria. We have cared for malnourished babies caught in the grip of famine, provided antenatal and postnatal care to women in hard to reach communities as well as medicine and immunisation for those suffering from diseases like Malaria and TB.
Aisha is just 8 months old. She lives in a rural area of Somalia. Her family, like many others in the region, live in a constant state of poverty, unable to access a nutritious and secure food supply.
Aisha visited the Muslim Aid health centre with her mother in October 2019. She was concerned that Aisha, like her sister before her, was suffering from diarrhoea and rapid weight loss. Following assessment, Aisha was diagnosed with acute malnutrition and admitted to the clinic for treatment.
Thankfully, following treatment Aisha has begun to recover and has now been discharged. Her family have been given nutritious supplements, support and she continue to be monitored through the Muslim Aid programme.
Our medical centres are stable points of contact that communities can rely on for help and protection through immunisation, nutrition, and localised treatment programmes.
Your support can ensure that children like Aisha get the start in life that they deserve.
With you on our side, we can create a world free of illness and disease.
